Our first glimpse of the Taj Mahal was through the East Gate. See the small archway in the center? From this point we could see just a little of the white marble glimmering through.
A few steps closer and it was a little more visible.
The way the sun reflects off the white marble is almost blinding.
Walking through the East Gate was amazing. It is definitely one of those things you have to experience to really appreciate.
And there it is....a wonder of the world....a symbol of Shah Jahan's love for his wife....
